How can I input 118.770? The closest I can get is 118.775.

118.770 doesn't exist.

118.70 = 118.700
118.72 = 118.725
118.75 = 118.750
118.77 = 118.775
118.80 = 118.800

As you can see they rise in .025 steps and there is nothing in between.

In radio communications, the frequencies are always abbreviated to 2 digits beyond the decimal place (in the U.S. anyway). So when a controller says "contact xxx Center, 118.77" he means 118.775. Also, most RW radios omit the third digit beyond the decimal. So when the radio displays "118.77" it's really tuned to 118.775 MHz.
